TI 84 Won't turn back on

I went into the application Francais and the screen showed up but when I tried to exit out of the application it would not let me. When I pushed the 2nd button I saw a 6 appear on the top right hand side of the screen. When I pushed the down arrow I saw the number 4. I did this several more times until the number was down to 1. When I pushed the down arrow again, the calculator completely shut off. I've tried to connect to the computer and to another calculator to turn it on but it won't do anything. I've manually restarted it and it still won't work. Will you help me?

    My son's TI 84 Plus won't turn on. Thought it was dead batteries and replaced the AAA's still nothing. I then replaced the lithium battery still nothing. I tried the procedures on the TI web site to no avail. When I remove all batteries and reinstall after a few minuted I get power and operation but then it won't shut off. As far as I know he has no funky programs loaded.

Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the DEL key. While holding DEL, reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display "Waiting...Please install calculator software now". Follow the instructions for the TI-83 family or TI-84 Plus family to reinstall the calculator operating system.

I believe your problem is actually your screen brightness, try this key combo [ON] [2nd] [UP], and HOLD IN UP. this should adjust the screen brightness back up and you should stop near 5. If you go above the desired level (screen becomes too dark) use the key combo [2nd] [DOWN] until you return to the desired brightness

You have made the lettering so light that you cant see it anymore. What you need to do is press the second key (then let go) and then hold dowm the up arrow until the numbers on the screen become dark enough for you to see them. You will see numbers flash in the top right corner, but they're just telling you how dark/light the numbers on the screen will appear. The normal setting is 5.

Take out all the batteries including the lithium one, and wait a minute... reinsert the batteries and immediately remove the francaise program (it's a waste of space anyway)

I would also suggest updating the OS on the calc because I think that bug was fixed in an update... I don't know though... I never used that program.

Good Luck

You adjusted the contrast on the screen.

To fix it just push the 2nd button and then the up arrow until you can read the screen.

Change the language on ti-84 plus silver edition


Press the APPS key. In the list of apps you should see one or more language names (Deutsch, Espanol, Francais, etc). If you want one of them, pick it. Else pick any one of them by pressing the number or letter in front of the name. In either case, you'll see a screen offering a choice between English and that language. Make your selection.

My problem is the same as this previous post! "my ti 84 plus silver edition seems to be on a different language setting because i dont understand anything it says. what do i do to change it back to...


Press the [APPS] button. Use arrow to scroll down along the list of apps. Look for apps that have names of languages (Francais, Espanol, Deutch, Dansk, Italiano, Norsk, any european language whose name you can recognize). Once you find the name of a language, highlight it and press ENTER. In the screen that is displayed inviting you to select a language, press 2:English. and press ENTER. The calculator localization should change to the default English language.
To avoid having to do that again, and to save memory spsce, delete the language apps you do not need. delete also the applications that are in those languages (periodic table, Cell Sheets, Science Tools, etc.

Ran out of coding room on my TI-84 PLUS


Hello,

if you are out of memory try deleting some applications (or backing them up on your computer).

If you cannot see your (function? ) plots check the window dimensions.

Hope it helps.

TI 84 cant turn on


Sounds like your pc had a static charge that it discharged to your TI and that it fried something inside the TI. No warranty, No fix. You gotta buy a new one.
